THE SUPERCHARGED DIESEL ENGINE OF THE PEUGEOT 604

Starting with a mass produced naturally aspirated Diesel engine, a turbo charged version has been developed for the purpose of fitting it to a passenger car. In its first part, this paper justifies and describes the modifications. In the second part, the main problems of engine to vehicle adaptation, and their solutions, are described. Afterwards the general behavior of the vehicle from the viewpoints of performances, fuel economy, exhaust gases pollution and noise emission, are reviewed. It is concluded that the turbocharged Diesel is of real interest.
